Growing up I remember cooking with my mom in the kitchen. My favorite was always making sugar cookies because I got to decorate them.
I'm so happy Nicholas (2) is so into helping me cook in the kitchen.
I've been cooking so much lately, my egg supply is dwindling down.
This morning when I was getting breakfast ready for my kiddos, I looked at the ripe bananas on the counter and realized I needed to do something with them before they became too ripe.
Jack loves peanut butter & banana sandwiches, so I figured why not make some peanut butter banana bread.
I was on a mission! My little sous chef, Nicholas was standing on a chair right next to me with a look of excitement on his face. This kid loves to cook just as much as mommy does.
Our peanut butter banana bread came out great!!!
3 or 4 ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup peanut butter
3 tablespoons melted butter
2 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1 and 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl mash the bananas. Add in the sour cream, peanut butter, and melted butter. Once it's all combined add in the eggs and sugar.
In a separate bowl stir together the flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients stirring just until combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 1 hour or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow the bread to cool in the pan for a bit before removing to a wire rack to finish cooling.

This dish right here is truly one of my specialties. I love making this dish. If it’s for Jacks Birthday, Valentine’s Day, or just because we want something fancy. Usually I just do the Filet with shrimp or lobster and topped with holandaise and asparagus, but this Valentine’s Day I decided to elevate my recipe a little more and try something new and this is what I came up with.

After years of cooking and sharing recipes, I have finally put together my blog site. Its been a long journey in cooking for friends and family. It wasn't until recently that I was given the confidence to actually create a blog and share everything I have learned and am still learning in the kitchen. I recently was given the opportunity to air on live tv with Good Day Sacramento. It was quite the experience. Friends and family told me I was a natural on tv, but what they didn't see on tv was how extremely nervous me. My mom and my husband were there calming me down. After each take, I would let out a big "Whew" and ask how I did. Apparently my nervousness did not show when the camera was rolling. Thank Goodness! I would like to share the recipe of my dish on Good Day Sacramento with all of you. Spaghetti Squash is that ingredient that we all seem to forget about. It's amazing and very good for you to eat. I think when people look at a spaghetti squash,
Motherhood. Where do I even begin. It is both beautiful, challenging and somehow completes every part of me. When I was a young child, I remember always picturing myself as a mommy when I grew up and I knew that I would be a great mommy and I wanted to be a best friend to my kids like my mom was to me. I never knew the challenges that came along with Motherhood. I never knew how much you would worry about these precious gifts from God that you brought into this world. A dear friend of mine is a new mommy to her second child and I have been chatting with her about her challenges she's been having and that has prompted me to write this post, because I'm hoping that, like some moms out there, I want you to know, that, yes, we go through this... so I want to share with you my story. I guess I should start with my birth stories.... Cause those are always fun... LOL With our first child, Nicholas, our birth plan, as with most, we wanted to of course go the natural way
